Workshop promotes sustainable environment

Mere Naleba
Wednesday, July 09, 2014

MEMBERS of the public were given a chance to learn for themselves the ambits of the law dealing with environment in a public meeting organised by the Environmental Law Association.

The 30-member workshop proved to be a success as it allowed participants to discuss certain environment issues that were not put to practice when developments took place.

ELA co-ordinator Kiji Vukikomoala said the vision of the workshop was to promote sustainable natural environment and to protect environment through the law.

Mrs Vukikomoala said in most cases, the law was not practiced because the law was not known to most people.

She said the inclusion of representatives from the Department of Environment, Town and Country Planning and other relevant line ministries was a positive sign in their efforts to include government ministries in their work.
